RAHWAY — The kindergarten classes at Franklin Elementary School in Rahway recently completed their annual chick project. Farmers from Quiver Farms visited the classrooms and the students were very excited to be able to see and touch a live hen and a rooster. The students learned many different things including how to take care of the eggs in the absence of the hen and rooster. They were all very excited when their eggs hatched and they saw the baby chicks come out.

After the students in Miss Lerner’s bilingual class sang the chicks a popular Spanish Lullabye called, “Los Pollitos” they took a “siesta.” Earlier in the day, students named the chicks, which is distinguished by the different colored dots. (Photo courtesy of Franklin School)
